  1. Starcraft 196 or 210 FM with a set of trim tabs.
  2. Yesterday we beat up all over Wilson and olcott just some small kings and steel. Never really found good temps and bait. Out by the bar right now pulled 2 teenage kings so far. Lots of boats though
  3. I think I have around 800' of 30lb power pro with 400' of 45lb copper and it fits perfectly. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Take a look at the starcraft stx 2050. A lot of guys troll from those on erie, and they are better laid out for casting/jigging than the fish master. I have a 196 fish master and its a great boat, but I troll 95% of the time so I got the boat that is set up almost entirely for trolling. The stx is similar to those two alumacrafts you mentioned.
  5. You can easily Make your own. A friend of mine actually came up with the idea for the box before Starcraft started selling them. Mine fits 10 planos and two 31 series batteries plus acts as a step.
  6. The terrova set up is nice but you need to keep the batteries charged. If you have a kicker the tr1 is a nice setup
  7. I have the bennetts 9x9. They came on the boat when I bought it used. I highly Recommend getting the lighted switch to see what position they are in. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Sounds like the prop/motor holes for sure. As for Trim tabs, I run a 196 fishmaster and several of my Buddies do too, after fishing on my boat with tabs they are all putting a set on. The tabs really smooth out the ride and keep the hull from pounding when it gets choppy. Also the tabs really help when the boat leans to one side or the other when running. Even with 3 big batteries in the bow, it still picks up and slaps when it's choppy, lower the tabs and let that huge bow slice through the chop.

  10. (2) Daiwa Heartland Roller rods for wire line. 8'6". Used less and a dozen times. - $150 for the pair Located in pittsburgh pa, but I will be in Olcott for a few days starting aug. 19th. Would prefer to avoid shipping. [email protected]
  11. This technique has become pretty much standard on lake erie for smaller boats. Some guys are adding an additional fin to the bottom of their terrova to keep it straight on a lower power. Fishing at around 1.6 and under most guys use just the electric, and above that a kicker and the electric on a 3 or 4 setting.
  12. Thanks for the Insight. I think I am going to start with a ff on one rigger and a spoon a little further back on the other and see what happens. I have a fishhawk so I will try 2.5ish on my down. My trip can't come soon enough! Dreamin of those drags screaming Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Making my second trip to the big lake in july. Last year I fished on a buddies boat and we did most of our damage on spin doctors/flies trolled around 2.0-2.2 down speed. I think the spoons wouldnt fire due to the slower speeds. Now that I am a few weeks away from my trip, trying to put together a game plan. How do you guys decide if you are runnings spoons, or running SD/Flies? Do you just put out a mix of everything and then dial them in based on what fires? What would a good down speed be for a program that is a mix of both? When I lake trout fish on Erie we end up running either all spoons or all flashers once all the rods are dialed in, very seldom do we get both firing all day.
  14. Thanks for the advise, Mark - Ill send you a PM about the western basin.
  15. Starting to get all of my gear together for a trip to Olcott in July. Going to pre tie a bunch of leaders for dipsy fishing and re-do the leaders on my coppers. Targetting salmon. What do you like (# test and length) for running spin doctors/flies off dipsys? - Spoons off dipsys? What # and length do you like for copper leaders? Any particular brand of flouro carbon for leaders? And finally what size swivels should I get?
  16. I couldn't pm you for some reason. Very interested in the boat! Can you email Me - [email protected] Thanks
  17. Hey guys, I have a trip to olcott planned this weekend (11-14th). I was wondering what those north winds will do to the fishing. Is there a solid thermocline set up out there yet? I fish Erie all the time but I know Lake Ontario is completely different so it is hard for me to judge. My buddy is ready to bag the whole weekend with the forecast calling for north/east winds all weekend, but I'm trying to be a little more optimistic.
  18. Good job, those lakers are a blast on erie! Are you guys fishing in NY or PA waters?
  19. Awesome report! Reading this from work makes me wish I was on the water. Quick question....What kind of rods are those pink ones you are using?
  20. So, Ive been wanting to try Lake Ontario for kings the last couple of years, but other obligations kinda killed those plans. So this year I am going to plan a trip early enough that I have to go! Right now I am thinking Id like to take a trip sometime in May, and maybe another one in August, I will probably be launching out of olcott. Will I have to make long runs to find fish this time of year, or will they be fairly close? I have dipsey rods, and downrigger rods that should hold up, but I am a little lost when it comes to running planer boards. Most of my trolling is done in erie, so I am use to running weighted plugs or jets off of planer boards. I hear a lot of people talk about leadcores and copper for salmon. Is it a must to have leadcore or copper rigs in may? Or will riggers and dispey be enough? Thanks
  21. Hello, I am looking to make a trip to the olcott area the weekend of aug 27th, 28th for my dad's 60th bday. This is a little last minute but I was going to bring my boat to fish out of, but I thought it would just be a lot more relaxing taking a charter out. Can anyone recommend a good charter for the area, and is it too short notice to book for this weekend? Also, any other recommendations for the area are appreciated.
